Koodo vs Virgin mobile?

Hi,
I need youguys advise.

I want to port over to Koodo or Virgin $60.00 unlimited calls ,1GB data plan.
I will do Bring Your Own Phone (AKA Sim activation only)
so,I ll get 10% off monthly rate fee($60.00-$6.00=$54.00/month)

Upto today, Koodo gives $100.00 gift card ($75.00 Visa,$25.00 store Credit @ Koodo store).
Virgin gives nothing but they say,they have Member discount with 25% off H&M and somewhere around..

What youguys think,who to pick?
Koodo to get onetime $100.00 gift card ($75.00 Visa,$25.00 store Credit @ Koodo store). OR
Virgin to get member benefit while stay with Virgin.
Thanks.

Are there any hidden fees that the website doesn't tell you about? I'm debating whether or not to cancel my Rogers account to go to Koodo.

Are the $57 2gb plans gone? That's too bad, they were decent deal, especially for Canada.

Looks like Koodo is giving you a better deal so go with them.

Escentially you will get the same service with both providers so whomever has the better phones and plans go with.

Since you bare bringing your own phone, only then plan matters.

on higher end plans yes. The plans mentioned would be a higher plan.
Poor Grammar and being long winded don't fit well together, Oh well.

I personally can't stand Koodo customer service, while Virgin CS has been great for me.

However, when it comes to a $100 GC for 25% clothing discount, then typically the $$$ wins over. However, you may want to talk to Virgin and see if they'll match it or provide it as a bill credit.

Koodo has been great and cheap, I recommend them.

Hoping by this time next year the SGS3 is as cheap as the S2X.

I can't stand Virgin customer service. Very unprofessional they speak like they're in high school. Not sure if thats the way they purposely setup. I called once and was greeted with "Hey thanks for calling virgin, whats going on yo?" I was like what???

i use to be with koodo and i loved them to guts. i was with them since i started High school. Best network coverage i have ever had! the only reason why i switched now is because i needed a data plan at a lower price. but i would so go back to koodo if i had the chance.
